Our approach to the buying process is essential to the success of our retail business.  We are fully dependent upon the ability to curate - which creates the demand.  We analyze data, see trends in the industry and our business and rely heavily upon that information to make our decisions.  We don't always get it right.  We discuss the impacts of a "miss" but more importantly the impacts of utilizing the tools we have implemented to curate exactly what our customer is looking for.https://houseoflolo.com/
